Falafel

Submitted by: MIKET78


Number of Servings: 14

Ingredients

    1 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
    7 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
    1 tsp. ground cumin
    1/2 tsp. ground coriander
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 medium yellow onion, diced
    1/2 cup plain fine dry breadcrumbs; more as needed

Directions

Heat the oven to 425°F.

In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas, 2 Tbs. of the oil, the cumin, coriander, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. black pepper into a chunky paste. Add the onion and breadcrumbs and pulse until the mixture tightens up. You should be able to easily form it into a patty—add more breadcrumbs as needed. Gently form the chickpea mixture into twelve 1/2-inch-thick patties.

Heat 2 Tbs. of the oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering hot. Add 6 of the patties and cook until nicely browned, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook the other sides until browned, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer the patties to a baking sheet. Repeat with 2 Tbs. more oil and the remaining six patties. Bake the patties until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Serving Size: 14 11/2 inch patties
